Skin is continuously exposed to external agents, this could reduce the efficiency of our defencing systems and accelerate the aging process.
Like every other cell, our skin has a life cycle and, through the remodeling process, the damaged proteins are removed and substituted by new ones. Wrinkle reduction depends on this process.
What are the tips to prevent wrinkles?
The way you sleep may actually cause wrinkles. The pillow puts pressure on your face each night.
What you can do: sleep on your back. People who don't sleep with their face on a pillow do not tend to develop wrinkles.
Some experts believe that a repeated yo-yo dieting (losing and gaining back weight) can damage the skin.
What you can do: if you've decided to lose weight, do it at a reasonable pace.
As we age, skin becomes thinner and drier. It becomes more important than ever to drink plenty of water.
What you can do: drink six to eight glasses of water a day.
